Red Hat Developer Demands Competitor's Source Code

A very serious argument erupted on the Linux kernel mailing list when Andy Grover, a Red Hat SCSI target engineer, requested that Nicholas A. Bellinger, the Linux SCSI target maintainer, provide proof of non-infringment of the GPL. I can think of two reasons why this is disturbing. The Linux kernel mailing list is where most of the business of writing Linux code happens, and the seriousness of violating the GPL, which would be like stealing from Linux.
